Great meal there on a Saturday night with two business colleagues. Very relaxed environment with individual tables and booths comfortably distanced. I had the ribeye rare paired with Bernaise butter. One colleague and the Rainbow Trout and the other the Buttermilk Fried Chicken. All meals well prepared and presented.
My sides were whipped potato and sautéed asparagus spears. We all commented that the kitchen was as attentive to the sides as they were to the mains. Highly recommended...

The food and service were good overall. The pimento cheese appetizer was great. Crab cakes were also very good. The shrimp and grits were a little bland and not the best. Apple crumb cheesecake was very good but pecan pie was such a disappointment. We’ll dine here again.

My wife’s order of fish was well cooked as was the appetizer, pimento cheese and pepper jelly. However, my order of steak cooked medium well was quite tough. I did not eat it all. I also ordered fried shrimp, which was good. I told the waiter about the steak. He offered to fetch another steak. I declined because I was sure it would be no improvement and anyway it would take too long - my wife would be done before I would be served a replacement. On another point, the „artwork“ was bad and clearly not in keeping with a southern restaurant. All in all, the evening was disappointing, especially given the high prices charged. My wife and I went to the restaurant hoping for a nice celebration of our 45 anniversary.

Milner’s meets the greatest challenge of a restaurant - consistency. The dishes are ALWAYS prepared perfectly and deliciously. You simply can’t go wrong with any meal on the menu.

Miller’s has an interesting menu that’s well executed. Venue is not in the most inviting part of town — it’s own a busy thoroughfare lined with a mix of retail and commercial businesses — but once inside its a delightful experience. Staff is congenial and efficient. Our server Trent was one of those guys who (appears) to have ur all under control and us always a step ahead. This was a stab in the dark for us but we’ll be back. A great “find.”

So glad to have rediscovered Milner's! Came for Valentine's Day in February and decided to come back for our anniversary in May. Their Sunday brunch is awesome. And Jason is the best waiter. We had him both times and were in very good hands. Highly recommend, and we'll be back!

The food here is consistently good. Never had a bad meal. Everything on the menu is delicious, no bad choices. Staff and patrons all wearing masks, except at the table while eating. Felt very safe. Waitress was very attentive and provided an excellent service. One of my favorite places in WS. Love it.

The food was absolutely amazing! We loved everything prepared. The service was terrible though and it was our first time dining at Milner’s. However, the bartender stepped in and helped and at that point our experience improved. My opinion is, with food that good, waitstaff should be top notch.

It was our matriarchs birthday. We had terrible service (by way of example, our waitress knew it was someone’s birthday but offered no desert or special treatment; she failed to refill or offer refills for drinks; and at no point inquired how satisfied we were with our food), the food was subpar. We have historically been a family that frequents this restaurant but today was wholly disappointing and over priced.
